SHOT Annual Meeting 2021, 18-21 November, New Orleans (LA), USA 

Join us for the Annual Meeting of the Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) 2021: This will be a co-organized meeting with the History of Science Society (HSS). The meeting will be held in person in New Orleans. Considering the Covid-19 restrictions and SHOT’s effort to expand access and promote further internationalization, for the first-time, parts of the meeting will be hybrid. Among others the joint plenary Opening, SHOT-HSS sessions, SHOT Presidential panels, and the Da Vinci lectures, can be accessed via our online meeting platform.

Central theme of the meeting is “Environment, Infrastructure, and Social Justice”, with particular attention to the role of race and anti-Black racism in history. The Program Committee created an inspiring program. The fact that SHOT and HSS are meeting in the same venue allows all participants to attend regular (= that don’t require special pre-registration) SHOT and HSS sessions. As you will discover numerous joint sessions are listed in both programs.

As we are planning the meeting amidst the uncertainty that you are all already familiar with, we decided to postpone publication of the tour-program until mid-September. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Please note that both SHOT and HSS are closely monitoring the public health situation in New Orleans and the evolving Covid-19 situation in and outside the United States. In collaboration with the conference hotel SHOT and HSS will take necessary measures to ensure a safe conference. We will post relevant information on our website as it comes available.

We are looking forward to meeting you in-person in New Orleans or in one of our virtual meeting rooms!

**Please note that all payment amounts listed are in US$.** 

By finalizing the registration, you accept the SHOT policies – among others the SHOT Privacy Policy – as posted on the SHOT website, and the joint SHOT and HSS regulations and Covid-19 measures for the 2021 Annual Meeting.
